Crazy Feta Dip

Invite some friends over immediately. Cut up some cucumber slices, red peppers, celery, and ration out some pita chips. Maybe open a bottle of wine. And start dipping. Or if you have self control, just make sure to portion out this delicious dip because before you know it, way more than 1/4 of a cup is gone and your afternoon snack has quickly consumed all your points for dinner. Honestly I am not quite sure what makes this dip so good. It’s just a combination of simple ingredients – lemon, jalapenos, and garlic – but something magical happens when you put them altogether. Really. Give it a try, stuff some between cucumber slices, spread some on a sandwich, just make sure to invite friends.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz reduced fat feta cheese (solid blocks)
  • 3 jalapenos
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • zest of half a lemon
  • 1/2 cup non fat Greek yogurt or cottage cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Peel off the outer, loose layers of the garlic skin and cut off the top of the bulb. Spray with some cooking spray and wrap in tinfoil. Roast for 35 minutes until the garlic is soft.
  3. When there are about 15 minutes left for the garlic, add the jalapenos to the oven directly on the oven rack. Roast for the remaining 15 minutes.
  4. Take everything out and set aside to cool. Once the jalapenos have cooled, remove the skin and seeds and chop finely. Place into a bowl.
  5. Squeeze out the garlic and add to the jalapeno. Then start crumbling in the feta cheese. Add the lemon zest, juice, and Greek yogurt (or cottage cheese) and mash everything together with a fork.
  6. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
